we saw the 3D version and it was absolutely stunning to watch. it has a beautiful story, one that makes you reflective about the human experience. I loved watching it with my husband- it was a great drama that appeals to both sexes equally, I thought.

Fresh, enthralling with more than just a hind of eastern mystersism this film is everything you thought it might be and then some. Visually it is a cornucopia of illusion and fantasy. Escapism at it's ultimate while displaying the indomitable complexities and contradictions contained in the human spirit. It is rare these days to find a film so far removed from the grinding formulated mediocrity typically turned out by tinsel-town these days.

I went with my teenage son and his girl friend to see this movie. I had not read the book, but after watching the movie, I think I'll buy the book! It began slowly, and I worried that the teens would think it was boring. I had read other reviews that mentioned the film is "very religious". I didn't find that to be true. Although the lead characters had tried many different faiths in his lifetime. But it wasn't shoved down my throat in the movie. I was surprised at the ending. It really sticks with you. Makes you think. When it was over, I looked at the kids and asked "well,what did you think?" The gf loved it! My son, wants to buy it on DVD when it comes out. I really didn't expect them to understand it, but in talking in the car on the way home, they really did get it! But, I will say, my son is a deep thinker. A, not-the-norm kinda kid. He's an artist, so the cinematography appealed to him. The scenes were so beautiful at some moments. GO see it. Bring your intelligent teens.

Amazing movie! Never read the book, so I truly had no idea what to expect other than what the TV commercials had shown....which peaked my interest. I am so glad that I went and saw it in 3D. The cinematography was amazing! It's a story of survival; both mentally and physically and makes you think how you would be able to handle such a horrific situation. Great lesson learned. Go see it, I don't think you will be disappointed.
